Undercover Lover

Jenny is determined not to be sucked into her brother’s life. Separated years ago they have recently been reunited and while he’s a rock star with all the accoutrements, she’s a CPA who hates her job. While he would love for her to be with him and allow him to support her, she’s steadfast. But when her and her brother’s past comes back to haunt them, she’s introduced to a whole new life alongside a man she’s never met, but who knows her very well.

Günter has been watching Jenny for years. And falling under her spell. While most see her as plain and average, he’s been around her long enough to see the woman beneath and he’s half-way in love with her. When danger forces him out into the open they start an adventure that could change, if not end, both their lives.

This book was not for those looking for a fairytale romance. It was harsh and rough and downright scary at times. With involvement in drugs and their use some might be offended. The first half of the book was build up and explanation for the reader. The romantic interaction between Gun and Jenny didn’t start until well into the book. I had a somewhat hard time reconciling the Jenny I was introduced to in the beginning of the book with the woman who embraced what was happening. But I guess that was the point.

While the first story, Sheet Music, was very emotional and drew me in that way this book failed to do that. What was more intriguing to me about this story was the convoluted mess that Gun and Jenny had to traverse and the spy games and intrigue. The romance was a side note. A good read.

Book Blurb for Undercover Lover

Good girl Jenny Ainsley never hoped for more than her nine-to-five existence. Then her famous brother hires a bodyguard to protect her—a sinfully sexy man who gets drawn into a plot to take down an international drug syndicate. At first an unwilling participant, Jenny soon realizes she has the opportunity to break away from her timid past and do something important. And getting her hot bodyguard into bed will be a delicious bonus. He resists her at every turn, however, and she discovers that no amount of training—or seduction—can crack the code to this man’s heart.

Ex-MI-5 agent Günter Faust is no stranger to watching the beautiful Jenny Ainsley. For years he’s seen to her safety, hiding in the shadows and pining for the woman he can never have. Bedding a client is not an option. But fate has put her by his side, working up close and personal. And with Jenny’s relentless determination to seduce him, it’s only a matter of time before she blows his cover—and his heart—wide open.

Publisher’s Note: Although connected to Sheet Music, Undercover Lover may be read as a standalone novel.
